Im a hardcore RTS fan i must say, the game is great so far but is a challenge, this game is not for the weak hearted. The base builting, upgrades and turn based make this game a true strategy game at heart, if you dont play it right its game over, i played about 15 hours into it and realized i had to start over. Give this game a shot if you like RTS and dont mind turn based, if not skip this one. Overall i was suprised and happy to be, the things you can custimize help make your team feel real and grow on you so when you lose a squad member it sucks. Graphics arent the best but are far from bad 7 out 10, sound 8 out 10, story is typical alien take over 7 out 10, and replay value 10 out 10. This is a game i will play multiple times for the simple fact nothing is same in every playthrough it varies even after reloading a save.

If you were a fan of the original game this is based off you will not be dissapointed. They captured everything that was good about the original and improved upon it.

XCOM is an amazing game. I never played the original, so I do not know how a long time fan would review this game. XCOM is a mix of turn based strategy and RPG. I was very skeptical at first, but my assumptions were quickly proved wrong. The one and only down side to XCOM is its difficulty, it is very easy to find your self 10+ hours into your first play through, just to find out it is impossible to win. One tip to people that decide to play this is be careful with your decisions, because they all have a positive and negative effect.
